    “In setting for Jumu’ah prayers I learned about Islam, working during Ash Wednesday taught me about Catholicism, and being present during the unveiling of a new sculptural showcase taught me about Sikhism. Every day was built on the understanding that there is so much outside of my individual worldview.”

    —Tikva Velazquez ‘23, Television Writing & Production major & Fish Center docent
